Re: Can I charge a BLS-1 Battery on a BCS-5 Charger


Thanks for all your replys,

I have contacted the seller, explainining to him I should have received a BLS-5 battery instead of a BLS-1 battery.

Infact the only difference between a EPL1s and a EPL1 is the battery and the ISO 6400 instead of 3200

I told the seller if I wanted a EPL1 I could have purchased from Europe, but I chose to purchase a EPL1s from Japan knowing I would pay customs , but have the benefits of having a BLS-5 battery and a 6400 ISO.

I await a reply from the seller.

Never fear, I swap the batteries between E-PL1/E-P3/E-PL5 and the mix of BLS-1/BLS-5/Clones work fine in all cameras and in all chargers be it the E-PL1 or E-PL5 or clone charger, all safe and no performance difference ever noticed.

I add dates so I know how old they might be. Mix of OEMs and clones.

Regards.... Guy
